Two of the Best Midwestern Beers from in my opinion the two best breweries in the midwest. They have definitely earned places in my beer fridge

Good article, I am addicted to hops and IPA's are my favorite but when I want something different I'll drink an Belgian style, imperial stout, or English style ale.

We are going to have a blind taste test soon with the La Cumbre Elevated IPA, which arrived just in time for last weekend's Phish run.
Honestly, I don't know which beer is better, but where IPAs are concerned, they're exceptional.

I've also been enjoying this:

I wouldn't say this is my favorite, but it was pretty good. Got some for my pops for his B-day.

I haven't read the 1,000 posts, but do you guys think about the Dry Dock Pale Ale and Arrogant Bastard? Loved both of them.

How about the kind of beer that comes from every faucet in your house...
